The watermark feature requires three items in order to work:
- the text or image for the watermark
- a distribution list
- a document serial number (not your program serial number)
WINDOWS USERS: Click on the File > Print > Setup (upper left corner) > Watermark menu command.
MAC USERS: Click on the Production > Watermark Setup menu command.
TEXT / IMAGE
Type in what you want the watermark to say, e.g., “Private Copy” or “Not for Distribution”, etc. or choose a Bitmap image (.BMP) for the watermark.
In the distribution list field, type in title for the list itself (not a person’s name).
Then, click the Edit button next to the field. In the window that opens, type in the names of the to which the script will be distributed (one name per line). THERE MUST BE AT LEAST ONE NAME IN THIS WINDOW OR YOU WILL NOT HAVE A WATERMARK. Press OK to save the edits to the names in the distribution list.
Create a serial number for the document, so that each copy of the script can be serialized. The serial number is arbitrary but must end in a number or letter. We recommended something like the initials of the script or author and a number.
Script title - “Blue Harvest”
Watermark serial number - BH001
Author - Joe Thompson
Watermark serial number - JT2011-A
The program will automatically increment the serial number for each copy that is distributed, i.e., BH001, BH002, etc. or JT2011-A, JT-2011B, etc.
Choose any other options on that window, such as watermark angle, darkness, font, etc., and click OK. You can now print or export to PDF using watermarks.
